Christianity or atheism, I think why people get on Christians so bad is because a lot of the are hypocritical when it comes down to it or throw god in your face when they find it convenient. Not all Christians but some do. I myself like to stay out of all the politics with religion. I just believe in spirituality.
You're right about a lot of Christians and smart to steer clear of religion ... I believe in God and Jesus even though I don't go to church... I'm not trying to convert anyone just wanted to say it's ok to think for yourself and don't be bullied into anything... If you look and research the answers will come...

Jesus certainly taught us to despise with... with... um, money changers conducting business in the temple?

Could use your help here on Biblical verses of lessons from Jesus to hate.

Huh? Are you trying to redirect your pro-hate argument?

Feel free to correct me, but the Son of God, who is God. who is the Perfect Human but not God, did seem to have a temper when money changers conducted their business in the temple.

It's right there in the Scripture.

Now where else did Jesus teach us to hate? besides fig trees not giving up fruit out of season...

You seem to be knowledgeable about the Bible. Tell us who Jesus taught us to hate.

I bow to your excellent memorization of the Good Book.
Are you a Bible Believing Atheist?
Doubt if money changers have a holiday for Jesus?

Your point?

And you could consider that the money changers do have a holiday for Jesus. The New York Stock Exchange is closed on Good Friday and Christmas.

US Banks are open on Good Friday but not Christmas.

But the churches are open and I'll bet they will take any donation regardless of the currency. They'll just exchange it when the banks are open again.

Or are you suggesting that churches don't use money changing institutions to conduct their (for profit/prophet) business?

Roman Catholic church does excellent work in Nigeria according to recent NYT article.
News media is secular, which I favor. Often take with a grain of salt and have friends who are reporters.
Public Schools closed for Christian Holidays and Easter is approaching. Bible clubs in almost all public schools.

Why do atheists hate christianity?
Atheists (maltheists) dont see christianity as a religious faith per se but as a political ideology which is right wing, capitalist etc.
And this is opposing their marxist political creed, if you look at the typical christian you will find that overall they are decent people who hold moral principles and do not compromise them.
If you look at the typical atheist you will find them to be spongers, criminals, anything to get their dick sucked etc. They cannot hold moral principles because morality is relative to them and them alone. So their sense of right and wrong is the same as a sponger or criminal and their 'atheism' is (to them at least) a 'justification' of their debased thinking, judgment and actions.

I am sorry that you can find meaning or purpose in life without your god, I on the other hand have.

I do not despise anyone because of their belief or lack thereof, but you do come across as a fool.

Your hate for others and the underlying hate for yourself seems to be coming out in your comments.

I do feel sorry for people such as you.

Your post lacks moral character.

You ramble about morals but portray none yourself.

I deem my morals to be much higher than your just by your comments.

You are rambling a bit here.

But there is a reason for the US governments to shut down on Christmas. While it's not a specific endorsement of Christianity, a large number of its employees are Christians.

And many are C&E variety Christians - ya know, the ones who only go to church on Christmas and Easter.

It's just easier to close rather than deal with a lot of employees trying to to fight to get that day off with vacation time.

States run Public Schools not the US Government.
Each school system decides on the school calendar.

Christianity is still in Public Schools.
Bible Clubs are legal
Prayers led by non instructional persons seem legal

Prayers before tests :-)

Holy Family Mangers on Public Land
drive atheists up the wall.

Atheists make fun of Christians and
Christians make fun of Atheists.

Keep the faith in atheism !
